Why choose Cookeville Regional for
your childbirth experience?

Since 1950, we have been welcoming new life.

Becoming a mom is one of the most rewarding milestones in many women’s lives.

We have been delivering babies at Cookeville Regional Medical center since 1950, and we currently average 1,500 births per year. Cookeville Regional understands not only the importance of your prenatal care, but also the benefits of a comfortable labor and delivery hospital setting. The labor and delivery team at Cookeville Regional has the skills and experience to provide the expert care you want for yourself and your baby.

Physicians, nurse midwives and our staff of experienced labor nurses coach and support expectant parents as they go through the birthing process. The Birthing Center meets the needs of all expectant parents, including those who wish to have natural childbirth in a home-like setting with the security of knowing that state-of-the-art equipment is close by in the event of an emergency.

We want to give you the flexibility to create the most unique, family-centered birthing experience available. We respect your values, your concerns and your wishes, so our staff works hard to keep you comfortably in charge of your own childbirth experience.

You can choose from an experienced staff of obstetricians, certified nurse midwives and pediatricians who, along with our labor and delivery nurses, provide you personal attention and easy accessibility combined with state-of-the-art technology. All of our rooms in the birthing center are private to maximize your time bonding with your newborn. We have 12 labor and delivery/recovery rooms, 12 postpartum rooms and two cesarean surgical suites equipped to handle any complication that may require more complex care. Infants remain with their mother throughout their stay unless they require special care. For those infants, we offer care in our nursery area in close proximity to our pediatrician staff and is outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment.

Lactation services are available to our mothers as well.

After all, you are bringing a new, one-of-a-kind life into the world. We want to make it a memorable and happy occasion.
